How much do you it would cost to build a computer to run windows 98?

I mean windows 98 has a maxium ram of 1.5gb :na:  so I can't see needing any advanced hardware

Basically I would need

-Case
-Floppy drive
-Cd drive
-Small power supply
-1GB of Ram
-Super weak graphics card

Could anyone give me an estimate?

I priced it up myself and got a pretty cheap price but I wonder if any of you can figure an even cheaper build

This is what I came up with

Case- $30
Floppy Drive- $20
Cd Drive - $20
Powersupply - $22
RAM - $23
Graphics Card - $30

So thats a total of $145

Can't you just use VM?

VMware Player is $145 cheaper than what you came up with, and it will be easier and faster to achieve.
